HTC launches Dr. Dre beats mobile phone

Taiwanese mobile phone manufacturer High Tech Computer Corporation has introduced the HTC Sensation XE – their first handset with a bundled in Dr. Dre set of in-ear headphones.

This announcement comes off the back of news from early August, where HTC formed a partnership with Beats Electronics, to bring a Beats by Dr. Dre audio experience to HTC mobile phones.

The Sensation XE is an updated version of the original HTC Sensation handset, which was launched in April this year as their first ever dual-core processor handset.

HTC’s Sensation XE arrives with a 4.3-inch SLCD capacitive touch screen, with an included 8GB microSD card and a 8 megapixel camera, whilst running from Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 with the latest HTC Sense overlay.

There’s been a change in the CPU department, which has been increased from a dual-core 1.2GHz processor to a 1.5GHz variant.

At the heart of the HTC Sensation XE is a combination of audio software and hardware, which automatically switches to a bespoke Beats by Dr. Dre sound profile and delivers audio tracks tuned specifically for those headphones.

It has been reported the XE is the first in a new line of HTC phones that will feature Beats Audio technology, which is set to deliver this studio quality audio.

No prices or costs have been announced yet to the HTC Sensation XE, only that the handset will be available across EMEA and Asia Pacific from late September.
